Please pray, friends facing possible homelessness!

I probably should have read the rules before I posted, I didn’t see that one’s not supposed to mention names in posts. Well, here’s the post again, but this time without names.

Hello everyone. I have two friends, male and female, who are married, they have two children, one of which is seriously autistic. They live with my female friend’s mom, and her grandmother, who cannot walk due to a stroke she had last year. They are bottom-of-the-barrel poor, 6 to one home, only 12,000 dollars income yearly.

Due to a broken septic tank (which is being considered a health hazard), and not having been able to gather the 2,800+ dollars needed to replace/repair it within 30 days, they are about to be evicted from their home in less than two weeks. They have nowhere to go. My friends fear that if they become homeless, their children will be taken away. That could drive my male friend to suicide. My female friend’s grandmother could end up in the hands of an uncaring aunt. Who knows what would happen to my friend’s mother (though she’s not kind to her daughter at all, she too needs a roof over her head). And my female friend.

I’m concerned for them all. So I’m here to ask for prayers. Pray hard, please.

Pray so that ideas, and avenues of help and assistance that weren’t present before, may appear before them. Pray that their current ideas of contacting their county council and finding an attorney/public defender won’t end in defeat. I know in the end that God’s will be done…I just don’t want them to be hurt or worse.

Prayers will be forever appreciated. Thank you for reading this. God bless.

P.S.: If you can contribute AT ALL to the repair of their septic tank, while there’s still less than 2 weeks time, please message me and I’ll give you their PayPal contact information, or a link to their Reddit post that explains in full their situation. Thank you. hoping the P.S. doesn’t cause this thread to be deleted, again :frowning:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Remember , O most gracious Virgin Mary ,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided .
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother .
To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful .
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy, hear and answer me.
We ask for your help and protection for this family, as you know the pain of homelessness
and uncertainty.
Amen .

O Mother of the Word incarnate, despise not our petitions but, in your mercy, hear and answer us. Amen.

Lord, please help this family and have mercy on them. Grant them strength, patience and peace in these very trying times. May some persons or some group, like Catholic Charities, be able to offer them some financial help. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer.

Hello everyone. My friend has basically tried calling all sorts of places for donations and assistance, she’s even called the representative of her state, who called someone to see if they could help, and nothing. At this moment they’re out, going to places to see if they can get loans to fix their septic tank issue (the issue that caused this mess in the first place). Their hope is almost out. They’ll probably get their eviction notice between this Saturday and next Monday, after that, they’ll have 72 hours to vacate. I don’t know what else to do but pray. Please pray for her and her family. They need ALL the heavenly and earthly help they can get. :frowning: Thank you SO MUCH everyone. May God bless you all.

Pater noster, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

I am going to pray the Rosary for them right now! Thank you for keeping us updated!
